Murder in the Gunroom

by H. Beam Piper

Piper has a lot of followers, and there's no doubt he had plenty of imagination and was a decent writer. When it comes to depicting emotion, though, he definitely failed, and in that respect this book is no different from his others.

This is an ingenious mystery, and a treasure trove for collectors of antique weapons. Pubbed in the 1950s, the wisecracking dialog seems straight out of the '30s.

The Valley of the Flame

by Henry Kuttner

Well-written, mysterious eerie…

Couldn't get into to it, though.

The Variable Man

by Philip K. Dick

Read this as a boy, only retaining the title and the thought it was pretty good. My tastes have changed, it seems, and now it strikes me as quite simplistic.
